I installed Garuda Linux today. The default shell emulator is Alacritty and the default shell, fish. However, after the update to the system, its constantly giving a warning:
Config error: shell: data did not match any variant of untagged enum Program


What is this error and what is causing it?

This seems to be a bug in the latest update of alacritty. The issue is still unknown as of today (1st Jan 2021). However, to fix the problem, you simply have to roll-back the alacritty config file located at ~/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml.
